Give it a try with no rear support and see what happens.  That's the ultimate challenge.  Gun jumps with every heartbeat.  Focusing on breathing and trigger control becomes extremely crucial.  Limit yourself to no more than one cup of coffee beforehand.

No, that is not correct.

It is a "Catch-all class for anyone wishing to use a lead-sled, large sandbag set-up, or other assisting device prohibited from the other classes."

It doesn't just mean "locked into a rest" like with a Caldwell Lead Sled or such a device that "locks" the rifle into a machine.  It just means using some equipment that was judged "non allowed" such as a leather rear bag.

I can guarantee you that most shooters on this forum could not use my set up with my leather rear bag and shoot 1 MOA groups, even with my rifles.

The rules should have said, "Shooter cannot use a Caldwell lead sled or any device that removes the shooter from the equation.  Shooter must remain in control of the rifle at all times."  

But I followed the rules as listed, even though I believe they are silly.

A 1 MOA rifle owner is someone that shoots the course with their rifle locked into a rest or uses some other kind of stabilization system that is not allowed in the regular competition

Guys and all who frequent this thread who own AR's;

Let me introduce you to my thread over on the ARs section.  It is set up to do exactly what the last several posts here have discussed;  Eliminate all non-shooter aids to shooting.  NO bench, NO sling.  NO prone. NO sticks. NO bipods. NO trees.  NO walls.  NO bags.

Just YOU and your rifle.

Please read the rules and...ENJOY THE SHOOTING!!

It is a lot of fun!

Hey if I had a nice big bag I wouldn't have thrown a few rounds away from the groups. My damn left hand was starting to get sore squeezing the shit out of my rear bag

I might use a small bag on my next tries, especially so I can show what my LAR-8 is really capable of.  A little support under the stock really steadies the gun in my experience.   On my first try, I did it with no bag for the challenge.   I should have mounted the targets up higher on the backstop, so that the gun stock was angled down a little lower, allowing me to rest my hand on the bench, and the stock on my hand, instead of hovering it.

Who are you asking about the bag? chocolateisyummy2? His bag looks identical in size to the one I've used on here and has been verified several times as acceptable.

His looks like one of these I've been using one of these I've also tried one of these, which is the same size, but I don't like what it comes filled with. Here is another brand that appears to be about the same size. Here's a picture of one compared to a hand-made sock bag. All of those are approximately the same size. We are supposed to stick to the type of rear bag that a sniper would have on him, and these "tactical" bags and hand-made sock bags are exactly what a sniper would carry with him.

The  Red Tac Gear bag in the link is the bag that I used. The picture makes it look bigger than it really is. I definitely have to squeeze the bag.

It would make more sense if any rifle that shot one group under 1 MOA be considered an MOA rifle. After all the rifle did shoot under an MOA...

Okay, here we go:




Picture of the rifle, post-range trip, because the Wife urged me to leave for lunch and I forgot to take a pic while there (next time I'm bringing MREs, or leaving her at home  ):



Rifle is a DPMS with a 20" CMMG upper.  Geisselle trigger installed.  Iron sights used; the red dot is 6 MOA on a good day ().  

Ammo used was Fiocchi 55gr FMJ.

I don't expect to get to (or under) 1 MOA with this rifle as-is.  Oh, well.  

ETA for complete info line format:

Service division Iron Sights at 50 yards: fervid_dryfire: DPMS 5.56mm/.223 - Geisselle trigger- Iron sights- Fiocchi 55gr FMJ. Groups: .629/.943/.854/1.505/.671 = avg. .9204" = 1.7994 MOA


ETA:  Was a great day for shooting, wish I'd had time for more!

You might want to recheck your calcs there...  You average CTC is .942, not 1.84.  You doubled it.  Your MOA is 1.799.  If that was with irons at 50yds, you just BARELY missed being in the top five.  Don't sell yourself short.  That's a phenomenal target!

ETA:  And if you'd got that ONE group at a size comparable to the rest, you'd be damn close to the top 3.

When he says "boolets" I think he means they are reloads. I have gotten some really good groups with pulled M193 projectiles, let alone Hornady new manufactured ones.

I posted a few random groups in This Thread

That was with a cheap chinese scope, without a rear bag, and before I got my Geissele trigger.

  I have enough experience behind a trigger to place a large sum that the M193/XM193 load is nowhere near a 1 MOA round in any gun.

I have been planning for more entries with "better" rifles, but I am not wasting the components now.

I am not calling out Belisarius_33, I am not calling him a liar, and I really don't have a dog in this fight (it isn't making me money, or helping me or my family in any way). I just know what I know, which is subject to change at any given time with enough evidence.

I look at it differently.

I think he is lying and thus I'll say it up front.  But he might not be.  He might be speaking of a very good set of components, handloads, etc, etc.  Doesn't appear that way at first blush, but...I could be wrong and would love to be wrong, but I think I am right.

SKG:  The system is working here.  The folks here are in fact policing the entries and I think they should.

Every "Postal Match " has those who shoot short, or use nonstandard targets, or disobey the rules or just flat lie, or, let's not forget....produce phenomenally out of the ordinary performance.  The latter COULD be true here.

If I had shot the target in-question, knowing what I know, I would expect concern to be shown by other members and I would not be insulted if they challenged me, and I would be glad to demonstrate in whatever fashion I could the reality of the performance I reported.  I actually think a lot of guys would, maybe ALL knowledgeable shooters would because they would know the results posted are so off-kilter.  Maybe the member in question will understand this too and not take it personally but rather be happy to demonstrate thru more epxlanation just how this could occur.

XM-193 is not 1 MOA capable.  Period.

But his entry is not valid anyway, as it was not properly submitted.

Let's just let it play out.  I IM'd him.  The use of the term "boolets" probably means they were handloads.

No point in derailing this more in the meantime.

Is it also not possible for a bullet pulled from a -193 cartridge to be 1 MOA (or better) if skillfully reloaded?

Yes, you just have to be lucky to pick the right 25 in a row for the challenge.

I have a few problems with a few of the last entries.

fervid_dryfire you never posted your distance and your rifle has an optic on it so that is where it should be placed. Take off the red dot and re shoot if that is the category you wish to be in.

Buick dan posted results from the same bench, one 50 and the other 100 yards. I'm not saying he did anything wrong here but do you guys think that we should add another rule that you must post a pic of the range as well to be counted?    

This also goes along with the XM193 post that you guys are currently discussing.    


Thoughts?      I'm not here to judge anyone I just didn't want this thread to die but it looks like it could turn for the worse.
